genesis-mining mined with hardware that wouldn't find blocks
250BTC or more was lost by all the miners due to this
genesis-mining should have returned the BTC the pool paid them, for mining with hardware that wouldn't find blocks, and that should have been distributed to the miners
slush hid this ... I wonder why
Little odd to see you in here spreading FUD, thought a little better of you frankly. Slush *to my knowledge* was perfectly up front when the block-withholding was confirmed. Insinuating he somehow "owes" the miners due to a bad actor withholding blocks is a bit of a strange way of looking at it.
Utmost of respect to the work you do, but I have left the arena WIDE open for someone to provide the evidence behind these accusations and there is yet to be someone willing or able to provide it.
Thanks Kano for always providing transparency.
Please send me the links to this "transparency", all I can see on Kano's site is the same as has always been there, the most basic of information you could possibly provide. At least I can count on you to reliably show up and spread nonsense regularly, brightens my day to see you back in here, with the same lack of any useful knowledge or information.
If someone takes the time to do the math on all that information they freely share, they might see where the problem lies. Like an almost exactly 10% less payout that expected over the life of the pool...
So I take it you're simply too busy to "do the math"? Or are you simply too "elite" to share your results with the peasants?
Are you really insinuating Slush is taking 10% off the top? This statement could hardly make less sense. You're talking about the theft of ~18BTC/day without a trace, that's a massive accusation to be coming from a Jr. Member who didn't bother including anything to back up such a damaging claim.
I have done the math, every one of my payouts has been on time and 100% accounted for, block for block. Still waiting for someone to show evidence
to the contrary.
while the coins mined have been paid what is the lifetime luck for the pool?
what is the 25 block luck?
what is the 50 block luck?
what is the 100 block luck?
what is the 250 block luck?
what is the 500 block luck?
what is the 1000 block luck?
A simple chart like this one below

All - Last 921 Blocks 87.0wks 100.9% 93.56% 94.19% 0.0369 106.17%
I say this because if the pool's luck lifetime is 90% who cares if the guy pays all the coins.
Way is the pool down 10% lifetime in luck?
In the interest of honesty open discussion will some one please show us slush luck stats.
in the format above?
I would say all pools over 100 blocks made should use this format above to clearly show luck.
"Luck is the residue of design"
Branch Ricky the first general manager to hire a black manager leaguer Jackie Robinson.
Most people think it just bad luck when a pool has a slow mining streak. That assume all factors are perfectly equal.
The 256 algorithm is an equal factor that is it.
The internet connections
The ddos protection
The pools coding
The Pool ability to detect bad miners doing a with holding attack.
Those are not equal and will be reflected in the pools luck stats.
More in the long term 100 block 250 block counts.
So does anyone want to make that list of block luck for slush?
